The paper investigates gasoline consumption in case of oil-exporting country applying Time-varying Coefficient Cointegration approach to the data from 1980 to 2017. Empirical estimations show that long-run income and price elasticities are not constant and are responsive to price and income fluctuations in the period considered. The income elasticity of gasoline demand increased until 2014, peaking at 0.151, following growth in disposable income, before declining to 0.136 in 2017. However, consumers do not stop driving when their disposable incomes fall, resulting in a less elastic response of gasoline demand to income. Price elasticities sit in the range of −0.31 to −0.05, becoming less elastic when prices are low and vice versa.
